Indian Regulators to Separate Medical Devices, Pharmaceuticals

The move may also mean a more formalized registration process in the country.

If you do business in India, you may want to take a look at the new rules being proposed by the Indian Ministry of Health and Family Welfare.

According to Emergo, the agency is proposing to separate medical devices and pharmaceutical products.

The new rules would create registration and quality requirements for medical devices, different from pharmaceutical products.

"Although the new rules pertain only to medical device manufacturers based in India, they are significant for all domestic and foreign participants in the country’s medical device market by showing that the Indian government now recognizes and distinguishes medical devices as a separate industry from pharmaceuticals," according to the post.
